MotoGP at Sachsenring 2012 (Many pictures)

Saturday qualification in the wet.

Stoner at Speed:

Valentino Rossi - Ducati

Jorge Lorenzo - Yamaha

Local hero Bradl - Honda

Crash series: Michele Pirro (17th 1’ 35” 595) β€œThe rain ruined our plans today and I crashed after just three laps. I just hit a part of the track where there was a lot of standing water, the bike aquaplaned and I lost control so it was a heavy crash. I went back out but I struggled to get my pace together again so that is disappointing and I am sorry for the guys in the team because without the crash I am sure we could have done much better. We'll try to make up for it tomorrow and if it doesn't rain we'll have a much better chance.”
